I have application deadlines coming up mighty fast. So what’s a girl to do? Paint her nails pink and buy yet another scarf. I don’t know what it is, but retail therapy really works to calm my nerves sometimes. Thankfully my sense of cheapness never really goes away so I never actually spend all that much. But yep. Only a few days left until applications are due. All the recommendations are in, but my essay, writing samples, and portfolio are still crap. Yep. Uh oh.
